"I´m totally unconcerned with skirt lengths.
They are not the issue. […] Life isn´t pretty.
Clothes can´t be pretty little things. They must
be bold… strong, we have to take this terrible
world and make fun of it with fun clothes,
functional clothes."

Gernreich, Rudi, in: Women´s World,
Los Angeles Examiner, Los Angeles, 1966
